But as a community we go beyond remembering the generous sacrifice of armed forces: our own mortality is captured by those who gave everything precious they had – their lives. I want to write a few words about something significant for the current life of Windsor’s Catholic community. I remember when I first arrived to Britain I quickly felt overloaded with information: You can’t do this… You have to wear this… This is what you have to do if… The information signs and posters were everywhere. I guess there are two sides to this. The first one is that a company putting those notices up secures its own interest. If something happens to me, I won’t be able to sue them for compensation because I was warned or ordered to behave in a particular way which probably I did not exercise. The second one, I have just mentioned: they are to make my life easier, safer, and more enjoyable. We have the Code of Canon Law, we have the Catechism – and it’s good. But they don’t say the time of masses in each parish, how to prepare for the sacrament of initiation of adults, where to go to get a copy of a baptism certificate, and so on. This is why a parish handbook has been published: as a point of reference, a guide book, and companion for everybody who lives in a parish. So I would encourage everyone to familiarise with its content. Like the information signs on the street the parish handbook leads us through a day-to-day life of the parish: people, procedures, times, groups uniting all members of the community and encouraging all of us to spend a little bit of our time to contribute to a particular group of interest, or maybe even leading it, to engage in worship and life. Although there are two churches in the parish there is still one community to which we can all contribute making it a real spiritual family.
